God rules this world through human government. Through wars He raises up and brings down rulers and nations to accomplish His will and purposes, thwarting the will of the devil and those following his demonic purposes. We honor those who sacrificed their lives to defend freedom so that the Gospel of Jesus Christ may have free course and be proclaimed for the salvation of sinners and for the joy and edification of God’s people.
